The controversy over the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) action against Boeing continues. California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has issued a subpoena to the NLRB for Boeing-related documents, The Hill reports.
The NLRB complained about Boeing’s decision to move a production line for its new Dreamliner plane to South Carolina from Washington. The NLRB charged Boeing was discriminating against its unionized workers in Washington. South Carolina is a right-to-work state.
Republicans have strongly criticized the NLRB over the issue.
"NLRB's action in the case against Boeing has the potential to create a job-killing precedent just as U.S. manufacturers are working toward economic recovery,” Issa said in a statement. "As this matter could take years to resolve and create even more crippling uncertainty for job creators, it is imperative that Congress get complete facts about NLRB's rationale and its decision-making process . . . without further delay."
